My three yr. old electric stove has been questionable from the start. bottom drawer won't stay in its tracks so is always lopsided and hard to open. oven door doesn't fit properly - looks as if it is open - tilted outward. the clincher was the digital display that controls the temperature won't work - replacement cost 160 bucks - stove itself was 500 - more than comparable stoves with 4 sides. why replace a part that will only last 3 more years? the handles are flimsy - the elements are skimpy and the trays under them disentegrated as well. this appliance accompanies an Amana dryer in my kitchen which quit after 5 years - small family - minimal usage. never again Sears - its no wonder this retailer is struggling.1 Replies - Latest reply on 06/23/2010Add reply
The biggest piece of junk, I will NEVER buy anything Amana ever again. This thing is constant expensive repairs, it is barely 7 years old. Now I went to open the oven door and it totally fell apart on one side and won't close. First after 2 years old, the computer for the oven temp. fell down and had to be replaced. Then after that the igniter had to be replaced. Then after that the broiler stopped working, and I have just been living without a broiler. Now this with the door, which lately wouldn't seem to close all the way and the light was always staying on.

It has cost me two entire days to get my washer warranty service, because Amana's (Whirlpool's) warranty service company A&E Service refuses to give customers any time slot and insists they be available any time from 8am to 5pm on the day of service. I feel I am being held hostage. Not only that, the washer should not have broken in the first place--poor design, plastic motor housing which got a hole in it and flooded my carpeted basement.

Amazing how they have trashed what used to be one of the best names in American appliances.

I purchased an Amana convection range in February 2005. This is one of their more expensive models. The clock and main heating element for the oven shorted out. The repair man said we're lucky it didn't start a fire. I contacted Amana and they said it was out of warranty and they would do nothing for me. I think a range that is not even 2 years old should be covered for replacement of the replacement items at no charge. The repairman said it would be over $500.00 to fix and recommended purchasing a new range instead. If I have to go to that extreme, it will not be an Amana.1 Replies - Latest reply on 02/06/2007Add reply
